By Michelle Larkin, Capital News Service

On his first full day in office, Gov. Wes Moore and Lt. Gov. Aruna Miller announced they’re releasing $3.5 million to expand abortion care training, part of $69 million in funds withheld by his predecessor and released by Moore Thursday.

“Maryland needs to be a state that is a safe haven for abortion rights,” Moore said. “We must as neighbors be able to unite behind the basic principle that all women are entitled to safe health care services.”
